Vestas has secured an 80 MW order out of a master supply agreement (MSA) with EDF Renewable Energy for multiple wind energy projects in the U.S. Vestas says it could ultimately supply EDF Renewable Energy up to 750 MW overall.

Deliveries and commissioning for the projects, which will use the V100-2.0 MW turbine, are expected to occur in 2014 and 2015. The new projects’ names and specific locations were not disclosed.

Vestas’ factories in Colorado will be involved in manufacturing blades, nacelles and towers for these projects. Earlier this year, the company secured a contract with EDF EN Canada, along with Enbridge, to deliver 166 V100-1.8 MW turbines for the Blackspring Ridge Wind Project in Alberta, Canada.

“This agreement builds on the long-standing relationship between our two companies in Europe, as well as recent collaboration in North America through the Blackspring Ridge project in Alberta,” comments Ryan Pfaff, executive vice president of EDF Renewable Energy. “With the MSA in place, EDF Renewable Energy is well positioned to progress key U.S. wind projects that will support near-term domestic manufacturing and construction jobs, and provide competitively priced, clean energy for our nation’s long-term energy security.”

Vestas notes each project will feature a multi-year Active Output Management (AOM) 5000 service agreement for up to six years. AOM 5000 is the company’s energy-based availability guarantee, and the service option includes the VestasOnline surveillance system that remotely controls and monitors the turbines and predicts potential wear-and-tear issues, the company adds.

On Sept. 12, EDF Renewable Energy also announced a turbine supply agreement (TSA) with GE for up to 200 MW of wind turbines for U.S. projects beginning construction this year.
